First time skiing at Caberfae, after 35 years of skiing in Michigan. Solid hill—some great tree skiing, good vertical for MI standards, and the BEST lift line management I’ve ever seen at a Michigan ski hill. With super long lines during COVID, they were simply asking skiers if they’d like to pair up or take on a single; some did, some declined. It made the lift lines move faster and mostly avoid singles. I’d like to see them re-install a lift in the “backcountry” area and allow skiing off the back (very steep), as the one drawback of the hill is that it has limited acreage—more variety of lift-served runs would help it be a destination....

For Michigan this place is not bad. Yes Crystal is way fancier and has all kinds of "resorty" facilities.. but it's huge $$$$$$$$ compared to Caberfae and Caberfae is taller and I go to ski areas to ski, not to get a mani/pedi..We got season's passes for all 4 in the family for only a little more than a single adult pass at some of the Detroit area ski areas....

A place not for snowboarders but for skiers.... Full Review
Rudest I have ever been treated by employees in my life. The rental building is filled with people who hate their lives and they take it out on customers. Their egos are over inflated and trying to have a interpersonal conversation with them will result in a scolding of how you should know how they maintain their equipment and if you don't do the same to yours then your an idiot. I had a guy threaten to take my lift ticket for saying you didn't need to use lock tite; he had no smile on his face and said he was serious, it was not a joke. After letting management know what happened they shrugged me off and didn't say anything about it. What really upset me about the whole situation is this all happened in front of my 11 year old little brother who I was taking out for the day. He has talked more about that incident more than snowboarding and that isn't how I wanted the day to be remembered.... Full Review
I make it a point to come to caberfae as much as I can. Best deal in the state for a day snowboarding. R dubs pub is just a little to small for the number of patrons that would like to find a seat for a drink at the hill.... Full Review
Great place to ski for the entire family at a fair price. ... Full Review
A very good Michigan ski area. Very homey feel in the lodge and they welcome picnic style lunches. Best lift ticket prices of northern MI areas. ... Full Review
The good. If you plan early you can get reasonable priced lift tickets and season passes here. $10/day. This is about the maximum any ski resort in Michigan is really worth for a 1 day ticket.
Every ski resort in Michigan lacks vertical. Caberfae is no different. It has more then most which is an improvement given the prices are reasonable. Caberfae's intermediate/expert runs at least tend to be steep from top to bottom without a big flat runoff at the top and bottom that leaves you with a very short actual drop. They are still short and you'll complete your run in a minute which leaves you almost satisfied but not quite. There is no real advanced or expert terrain here. Anything labeled black or double black would be a solid blue at an east or west coast ski resort.
The lifts tend to be on the slow side here especially the south peak chair. There are no detachable high speed lifts here.
